Starting in late February, anyone can register for the Walking Challenge through this website as a Team Leader or Team Member.
As Team Leader, you register first and create a team. You can then invite others to become Team Members and join your team. The Team Leader should be someone who can help motivate your team during the challenge and possibly organize group activities. Leaders can email all Team Members through the website. During the Walking Challenge, you enter group walks for your team (including Offline Members—see below) on the Group Walk page and your own individual walks on your personal page. All miles are added to your team's total.
Team Members can join any established team after registering on the website. You will be able to create a weekly goal, log your miles and view the progress of your own team, as well as see how you rank against other teams.
Online Team Members are those with regular internet access who can log on and enter in their own miles. They will receive emails from their Team Leader and the Shape Up SF Walking Challenge Administrator. All Online Team Members can view the progress of their teammates. If you wish to hide your personal progress from your teammates, make sure to register as "anonymous." Your miles will still contribute to your team’s total.
Offline Team Members are people without regular internet access. They are still welcome to join a team and contribute weekly exercise to the team’s total, but the Team Leader will enter their miles. Offline Team Members must regularly report their miles to their Team Leader. Check out the Resources and Tools page to print out forms that will help Offline Members track their miles on paper.
